environment, you don't know where they've come from or they've been in ship holds which is really hot, just as a number one rule, if you smell something plastic don't drink out of it. >> that's good advice. >> i have two questions, they're a little bit unrelated but the first one goes on the scheme of plastic, so plastic wrap, plastic bags, you know, it's great to say we should all use glass but we know what's used out there is plastic, and it's reusable, you can come up with all these ways to avoid it but there's plastic everywhere and it's accessible and cheap, so plastic wrap gets used a lot, there aren't that many alternatives that can do what plastic wrap does, i don't use a lot of it and it's harder to store things long-term and same question applies for the freezer, it's easier to put things in a freezer bag. >> so, a little tip for that is i do admit to using plastic bags, i reuse them and if something is not -- i don't use them for liquids and if something isn't somehow already kind of like a solid or whatever, parchment paper around that and then use the plastic just as the thing

whether we have a respectable environment or and not part of that is education and we have to educate the adults that spend time with the kids and the federal government will come up with the giens and 37 factors or 40 and frankly most of us won't remember and unless we're prosecuting and looking for the elements of the crime and whether we're going to file a case or not. i i think we need to be more global than this and this works and we need to illustrate the things that aren't acceptable? what is the impact on the victim? what is the impact on everyone else? and working together to solve the problem. >> nancy. >> in some school districts and teachers when i brought up this issue i get back "you're not going to change kids being kids. some kids will pick on other kids and in the dynamic girls will be friends today and the queen bee will turn away from some girl and the enemy today and tomorrow it's somebody else, and again i agree with george and so much of this is the responsibilities falls on those adults who actually have a bird's eye ore worm's eye view of what is going on in

like to add. in the environment and which our officers have to work. i think that it is incredibly important and i want to leave a quick note that we have trained, one of the best trained departments in the country identifying with the mental health and in 2001, we began the initial training of 40 hours of 40-hour training for each officer in the mental health awareness, the deescalation building and that went from 2001 to 2010. that was done in conjunction with the mental health board and the members of our department were trained and provided that training. in 2010, i believe, when the chief came on and we began having the discussion about adopting a different model. adopting a key to dealing with individuals in crisis and we looked at other agency and looked at memphis who had the model and in place for some time and partially adopted that model. today as i indicated on top of the 983 members that were trained over the last ten years, we have trained since the last year, 118 of our own and some of other agencies. the work is significant, and we have over a dozen entities both pu

sense to them. fiori remains hopeful that even in this tight-money environment, financing will ultimately come his way in the new year. mcauliffe adds that while mortgage rates have remained below 4% for some time, he sees them climbing higher throughout 2013. retailers had hoped the extra weekend before christmas would help them recoup from the nearly three-week trough in sales that followed black friday weekend. in the end, it wasn't enough, and it resulted in the worst year-to-year drop in sales since 2008. "fiscal cliff talk and unwillingness to empty wallets completely in this uncertainty was what happened." "retailers could learn from this by putting more items on sale during the lull to keep shoppers in stores." the late october superstorm had lingering effects. sales across the mid-atlantic states dropped 3.9% from a year ago and 1.4% in the northeast. those two regions alone account for nearly a quarter of all retail sales in the u.s. seven-eleven, which has embraced hot dogs on rollers and breakfast sandwhiches under heat lamps, is trying to going healthy. tired

but it has bigger effects because it's going to reduce the overall load of pesticides in our environment that workers and farmers are exposed to and make our way into our air and water so those are important reductions that go beyond our own home and can affect everybody's health. some tips there are to choose hormone-free meats and milks in particular, to go with organic dried beans or organic frozen fruits or vegetables, some of our colleagues have the dirty dozen of foods to almost always buy organic and the clean 15, which are foods that you can kind of skip the organic because they have a stronger protective, like a ban ban na which has such a big peel, keeps those pesticides out, so if you're working on an economy of scale, you know, go with organic with the ones that have the highest levels of pesticides. our website has a link to those tips so i can show you where that would be. and now we're going to pop into the living room and talk about flame retardants which are an important issue for any firefighters who are working in the field because it's those burns that are going to cr
